175. Ride On, McMullin!
Evan McMullin, independent candidate for president, joins Jay and Mona with surprisingly encouraging news about his efforts to offer a choice to those dismayed and disgusted by Trump/Clinton. He explains the p’s and q’s of ballot access and write-in campaigns and then talks some policy.
Jay and Mona then mull their mixed feelings about banning the burkini. They discuss Georgetown’s affirmative action for the descendants of slaves the university sold generations ago, a teacher who denied Shakespeare to her “diverse” students, a few words about a truly heroic doctor, Denis Mukwege, and some reflections on childhood in the summertime.
The closing music is “Ride On, Jesus,” arranged by R. Nathaniel Dett, sung by Florence Quivar (mezzo-soprano).
